Adaptations are available to all students.
Adaptations are teaching and assessment strategies so students can achieve the learning standards of the subject or course.
A few examples of adaptation are:
- Breaking up assignments into smaller parts
- Demonstrating learning in different ways, oral exam or visual representation.
- Using speech to text technology.
Modifications are for students with diverse abilities who are not able to access the learning standards of the curriculum.
The decision for a student to be on a modified program will take place in their grade 10 year. Parents will be consulted prior to their child being on a modified program.
Students on a modified program are assessed in relation to the goals and objectives established in their Individual Education Plan.
